Hip Hammock

hiphammock.jpgLaurel and I loved babywearing, but as she outgrew various slings and packs, I was resigned to hoisting her on my hip, which led to exhausted arms and the loss of hands-free babywearing. If only I had known about the Hip Hammock. This streamlined carrier comprises a soft, lined triangular hammock with two easy straps: one to secure around the waist, and a well-padded shoulder strap that goes over the head and across the chest like a messenger bag. This carrier is designed for kids 4 months to 3 years, but it’s especially fabulous for toddlers, with the open leg areas negating the pinch factor and the hands-free design allowing you to score that coffee you desperately need after a busy morning of toddler chasing.
